Produktivität und Menschlichkeit - sind das nicht Gegensätze? Ist die Kopplung von beiden nicht ein schier unlösbares Prob-lem? Produktivität und Menschlichkeit schließen einander nicht aus; sie bedingen sich wechselseitig und stehen in engem Zusammenhang mit unserer wirtschaftlichen und gesellschaftlichen Umwelt.

Companies must confront an increasingly competitive environment with lean, flexible and market oriented structures. Therefore companies organize themselves according to their business processes. These processes are more and more often designed, implemented and managed based on standard software, mostly ERP or SCM packages. This is the first book delivering a complete description of a business driven implementation of standard software packages, accelerated by the use of reference models. The use of those models ensures best quality results and speeds up the software implementation. The book discusses how companies can optimize business processes and realize strategic goals with the implementation of software like SAP R/3, Oracle, Baan or Peoplesoft. The book cites numerous case studies and outlines each step of a process oriented implementation, including the goals, procedures and necessary methods and tools.
European manufacturing industries are changing fast. Amid the pressures of globalisation, emerging markets and shifting geographical patterns of consumption and production, competition and collaboration need to be redefined. The book contains roadmaps for survival in the emerging global competitive arena by and for practitioners, as well as concrete examples and theoretical studies across industries. New forms of cooperation are analysed which combine intensive collaboration with high competition in networks of excellence among suppliers, manufacturers and customers. The success factors for such industrial networks are described in detail, as well as their benefits and potential risks. In a multidisciplinary approach, the book draws on parallels from other fields and disciplines in order to explore the many facets of competition and collaboration.
New technologies and information systems mean new approaches to managing businesses. The authors suggest that to maintain their competitivity organisations have to align themselves to take advantage of information flows and to increase performance.
